welcome to HealthcareMagic
For 5'2" the weight of 68 is high normal being 50-62 kgs .The unwanted hair;irregular periods can be due to polycystic ovaries for which your doctor has prescribed medicines.Since your weight is also increasing and your TSH is 6.45 it is aso slightly high and needs to be monitored as increase in TSH will signify hypothyroid and weight gain is a symptom of hypothyroid.Since your doctor has prescribed medicines for 15 days please follow up with him/her again till then continue the same.

Though PCOS is common, but it is major cause of infrtilty .So u need to contiue with th metformin, also your thyroid tablets.Get scan done repeatedly to look for ovarian status.If BADLY pcos then ovaries can be surgically punctured laproscopically.Exercise and diet plays important role
